Not sure you can keep up with reviews? Want to play bingo but you feel you have nothing to offer? Need more excitement than mere bingo cards can bring?
What are the Exchange Bingo super surprising Mini-Rounds, you ask?
Why, the Exchange Bingo super surprising Mini-Rounds WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
A super surprising Mini-Round will be announced every two weeks during the ss/hg exchange.
If you choose to meet the super surprising Mini-Round challenge, you will leave a review on every entry posted over two weeks. Art? Review. One-Shots? Review. Two- Parters? Review. Review. Multi-chaptered stories? A review for each chapter/entry of the story.
Then, at the end of the two weeks, you will post a list of the direct review links as a comment to that Round's announcement entry. There will be a grace period of two days to do so (example: the review round is October 3 - 14, you post your list by Midnight EST (New York, USA) October 16).
The list(s) will be verified, and a winner selected by lottery. Winning announcement(s) will be made no later than three days after that particular mini-round has closed. The winner will receive a spiffy banner, the Queen of Reviews throne (imaginary) for two weeks, and a special prize.
You may choose to participate in as few or as many super surprising Mini-Rounds as you like. It’s a great way to keep up with the Exchange and your Bingo cards, if you’re playing those too.
You do NOT have to sign up for cards to play in any or all mini-rounds.
But wouldn't it be nice to make your work pay off twice?
Mega Participants (those who complete every Mini-Round) will be eligible for Super Dooper Special Prizes at the end of the Exchange.
(Estimated length of exchange based on two stories/art per day, not including weekends, 160 gifts; actual posting schedule may vary - if it’s shorter, there will be fewer super surprising mini- rounds, if it’s longer, or breaks for holidays, there will be more. Round 8 has an extra week to compensate for the holidays).
